Grandkids, 4-H steers and the pregnant cows

10 Mar

We never forget what a privilege it is to be raising children alongside our cows, sheep, horses, dogs, llamas, etc.  Today, the three “big kids” (8, 6, and 4) went out to work with Siobhan’s 4-H steers, check the cows who are about to calve, and just play in the slush and snow.

    My favorite photo is of the kids. Their smiles draw me in to the moment.

    The birds are red-wing blackbirds. They appear to be mostly males. You can see some of the red in one of the birds on the upper rightside. Yay for spring!

    Salt seems pretty pleased with himself!
